In an exciting main event at super welterweight, Edwin Soto (12-2, 5 KO’s) TKO’d Ray Oliveira, Jr. (8-2, 1 KO) at Twin River Casino in Lincoln, RI. The undercard was quietly building up to a bout which featured two young prospects with forward-coming styles.

Oliveira was hurt in the 1st as Soto connected with a few right hooks. In the 2nd, Soto impressively kept the pressure and backed Oliveira, Jr. into the corner as he put on his earmuffs and took heavy punishment until referee Steve Smoger rightfully stopped the fight.

In the main event at the Frontiers of Flight Museum in Dallas, Texas Ernesto Delgadillo (10-0-2, 2 KOs) outworked the tough Oscar Mojica (11-4, 1 KOs) to retain his WBC USA super flyweight title. Delgadillo was defending the belt for the first time after winning it last November in Dallas, while Mojica won the ABO flyweight title at last year’s event.

Delgadillo, a southpaw, came out firing from the opening bell landing his jab and power right hand on the taller Mojica. Mojica, though, stood right in the pocket and landed counter shots on Delgadillo as well. At the end of the 3rd round, both were landing in a wild finish to the end the round.

Szeremeta shocks Goddi to win Euro middle

By Marco Bratusch

Polish middleweight Kamil Szeremeta (17-0, 3 KOs) shocked Italian co-challenger Alessandro Goddi (33-3-1, 16 KOs) early, winning the vacant European 160-pound title via second round TKO at Palazzetto dello Sport in Rome, Italy. Goddi came out busy in round one looking to force the action but he remained on his punches too much and was soon counter-punched by a very accurate Szeremeta, who lands some vicious hooks and uppercuts. The opening stanza was all in all fairly balanced but in the second round, Szeremeta landed a hard right cross to the temple that sent Goddi to the canvas. The Italian beat the count but was floored again one minute later from another clinic blow. Goddi stood up again with great difficulty but as soon as referee Victor Loughlin was allowing him to resume the fight the towel flew in from his corner and the bout was properly stopped.

Ortiz: It’s gonna be a bad night for Wilder

Heavyweight title challenger Luis Ortiz says he won’t get sucked into a war of words with WBC world champion Deontay Wilder, who he will attempt to dethrone on March 3 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

“I’m ready to go,” says Ortiz. “We’re ready to go this week if we have to. As far as for the fight and for Wilder, I have no comments for him…none of this talk bothers me. He can talk all he wants. Deontay is trying to convince himself…it’s going to be a hell of a fight and somebody’s going to hit the canvas. While he keeps hyping himself and hyping himself and trying to believe in himself, it’s going to be a bad night for him. He’s talking about PEDs. I’ve taken seven tests in a month and a week, seven blood and urine tests for VADA and the New York Commission.

Korean champion maker Jin-Kil Kim passes away

By Joe Koizumi

This is sad news from South Korea. “Champion maker” Jin-Kil Kim, the owner of his Daewon gym in Seoul, passed away at the age of seventy-eight last Saturday (February 17). It was reported by Major Lee Won-Bok, secretary general of Korea Boxing Federation (KBF). Kim won the Novice King tournament in the lightweight division, though he couldn’t acquire the Korean national belt. He opened his gym to cultivate youngsters and produced many strong champions such as Chul-Ho Kim (WBC 115-pound champion), Myung-Woo Yuh (WBA 108-pound titleholder who was elected to the International Boxing Hall of Fame thanks to his seventeen defenses) and In-Jin Chi (WBC 126-pound ruler), etc. Kim was good at coaching such a non-stop combination puncher as Myung-Woo Yuh who was dubbed “evening shower.” May his soul rest in peace.

Kovalev: I should be ready for everything

WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (31-2-1, 27 KOs), who puts his world title on the line against Igor Mikhalkin (21-1, 9 KOs in the 12-round HBO main event at The Theater at Madison Square Garden on March 3, says his two losses to Andre Ward are in the past, but not the valuable lessons he learned from them.

Photo: Dave Spagnolo/Main Events

“It was the lesson of my life,” says Kovalev. “The last two years before this (upcoming) fight, my sport mode was broken” due to his travel schedule back and forth between Russia and the U.S., missing workouts and changing time zones. Kovalev said it wasn’t a matter of not putting in the work, but not maximizing his training and doing damage with poor diet and overtraining.” Continue reading “Kovalev: I should be ready for everything”
